Enlightenment
Title Enlightenment
Message To be enlightened is to see everything clearly in the light that emanates from Oneself. However, the light can only “shine” when the mirror is clean - i.e. when no judgements, emotions and other obstacles obscure the sight. Since such condition is scarce, even rarer is the event of enlightenment and – considering our characteristic short attention span – fleeting as well. Yet it is apparently so impressive, that almost anyone who experiences it will seek its re-occurrence. Taking into account the amount of respective Buddhist, Taoist, Hindu & Zen schools, and the number of permanent enlightened individuals - there seem more efforts being taken in the Orient than in the Occident*. Probably because the dualistic R/P mode of latter, its rationalism and feedback-mechanism of the intellect, inhibit Selfrealisation. Moreover, occidental seekers were often forced into the Occult, and to hide their methods & results – conditions unfavourable to enlightenment which, after all, is synonymous with liberty. In the beginning of the twentieth century A.Crowley introduced, as head of the “Ordo Templi Orientis”, a liberation tool developed in Buddhist & Hindu Tantra schools, that came to be known as sexual Magick, and to be able to annihilate the social & internal obstacles arising from sexual taboos, and to be a short path to Illumination. *Orient and Occident connote here R/P (Reflection/Projection) systems, as well as cerebral and global hemispheres (see “Another view of Consciousness”)
